O’s Notes: This is a rousing live performance in Basel Switzerland during 1953. It is the second CD on TCB from the same session. The band is swinging hard and performing with high energy and enthusiasm over nine tracks. You can feel the fervor of the crowd’s response on “Hamp’s Boogie Woogie”. Among the talented band are Clifford Brown (t), Quincy Jones (t, p) and Monk Montgomery (b). This was undoubtedly an entertaining experience. This is Lionel in prime form working all elements!
